State government allots Rs 5 crore for Khallikote cluster University revamp




 State government has sanctioned Rs 5 crore to Khallikote Cluster University for infrastructural developments for the playground of the Khallikote (Autonomous) College.

"We have received a letter of sanction of the amount from the government. The construction of at least two toilet complexes and water supply facilities, in addition to basketball court renovations and setting up of the sports council office can be accomplished with the funds," Vice-Chancellor of Khallikote Cluster University, M M Padhy said.

At present, there are no toilets or water supply to the grounds, even though several sportspersons and fitness enthusiasts are regulars there.

Several private organisations, including private colleges, conduct sports meets and tournaments at the Khallikote college play grounds.

"Several people of the town use the grounds every morning for their morning walks. We thanked the government for sanctioning the funds for the development of the grounds," said Prakash Chandra Panda, former lecturer in physical training education at the college. He urged university authorities to start coordination with the construction agency and get to work soon.

"The government has also sanctioned Rs one crore for the construction of two toilet complexes -- one for boys and the other for girls -- at the Khallikote (Autonomous) College," said Panda.

Most of the existing toilets in the century-old college were in a dilapidated condition.

College authorities had drawn attention to the condition of the toilets in the college to the higher education minister Pradeep Kumar Panigrahy during his recent visit to the campus.

The minister had then assured that the government would provide financial assistance to the college for construction of toilet complexes and for infrastructural development of the playground.

From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
